[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I thought that this was an interesting shot of Big Horn Rams at Disaster Point in Jasper National Park, Alberta. The Rams are in the high country all summer and tourists don't see them much, however starting in early November through to about early June they can be found at the normal salt lick locations in Jasper Park.

Hello John,
Very artist capture John, how did you get them to line up. Great focus and depth of field in this amazing capture, thanks for sharing.

Hi John,
interesting point of view shot with good perspective.The focus,colour and details are all spot on.I like the dark areas on their horns,horns that have butted others to be sure from the looks of it.An artistic photo and one I find to be a touch above the usual.Thanks for giving us this view of these three fellows. Bob

Hi John!

A superb wildlife picture, surprising, stunning and funny at the same time. The composition with the diagonal formed by the heads and corns is very well seen, the color- and lighting management is great, too. The whole is underlined by an impressive artistic aspect.

Well seen, well done!

Kind regards


Hello John,

Again a very nice composition with these rams. Good sharpness and lighting. Beautiful natural colours.
Well done,

great composition and execution...unusual capture/ Great POV and details on horns and fur...

Hello John,
This is a great capture, almost unreal!
Great use of the principle of three, and the repetition effect on several levels is awesome...
Well framed, good details!

Hi John
Very nice image. Good composition - I like it very much. It seems that rams wanted to see who is that person who is taking pictures.
Nice colours as well and excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
